Teachers' Action in Community Problem Solving

  • Teachers' Action in Community Problem Solving

    David Pugalee and Carol Malloy
    The professional development of teachers of mathematics is a complex process that strives to foster growth both in mathematical understanding and pedagogical expertise. The model described here helped teachers to implement reform initiatives that integrate pedagogy and content and to integrate these reform practices into the current curriculum. These goals were accomplished through structuring the professional-development activities to facilitate the development of a mathematics community made up of the instructors and the teachers.
